If you are wanting to change your demographic details including name, date of birth, gender, address and language on your Aadhaar card, you can do the needful through Self Service Update Portal (SSUP). The SSUP is a portal for Aadhaar holders which is used to correct or update addresses in the Aadhaar card, without visiting the office. According to the information provided by Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), Aadhaar card holders will now be able to update more than one detail at once.
Taking to their official Twitter account, UIDAI wrote, “Update your demographic details online through SSUP” and further shared the link of the portal too. It is also important to note that though more than one detail can be updated at once, a charge of Rs 50 needs to be paid per request.
How many times Aadhaar data can be updated?
Because UIDAI is giving you the opportunity to correct your demographic details, it does not mean you can keep changing them at your own will. An Aadhaar holder can update his/her date of birth (DoB) once in a lifetime (change in date of birth is only updated only for unverified DoB). When it comes to gender, update can be made once in life time and changes in name are permitted twice in a lifetime.
Document required for online updates:
To update the requested data, the portal has some verification requirements.
Name: Scanned copy of Poof of Identity (POI)
Date of Birth: Scanned copy of Date of Birth
Gender: An OTP authentication via mobile/Face Auth
Address: A scanned copy of Poof of Address (POA) is needed. However, resident can update address even if they don’t have a POA document.
Language: No verification document is required.
Apart from the mentioned documents, a registered mobile number is mandatory for online Aadhaar update requests as the registered number will receive OTP for Aadhaar Authentication, which will be a final confirmation for initiating the update.
